Hmm. Ninjas.

Lisa's actually gotten me to start taking vitamins regularly for the first time in my life. Monstrous fucking GNC horsepill Mega Men vitamins bigger than my thumb. But she said that we're both going to take care of each other, and we're both going to work on our health so that we won't have problems later on, and I made a promise. So.

I'm also drinking this utterly fucking ghastly Celestial Seasonings "Detox A.M." herbal tea that she says really helped her, and while it claims to have a slightly vanilla flavor, it reminds me more of curdle. But, I made a promise. And flushing out toxins from my system probably isn't a bad idea. (Plus, it's supposed to help cut fatigue.)

In less yucky tasting news, Alternators Sideswipe tastes like sweet cherry pie. So much so that if I get a windfall in the future, I might actually consider giving Lisa the Alternator, and ordering myself the Binal-tech version, because I'd like to see him in Die-cast. As it is, however, he's a fun toy, and while it took me a few minutes to figure out exactly how to transform his arms back into the vehicle, I like the overall results.

I decided that since Wooster sucks about stocking Energon or TF's in general, I may sit out of the majority of Energon (though Landmine, E-Megs, and Omega Supreme will probably end up on my shelf), andj ust concentrate on finding Alternators as they come out. This will also be a lot nicer to my little wallet.

It's another day. We'll see how it goes.

Pedro is extremely NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

After spending $89 million to get the damn company back, why are they selling it off? So evil, so betraying the legacy.

Edit: Ahhh, here's a good way to sum up what I feel about it all.

Well, that's about time.

It's not that I don't like Dean. I think he did very well and he had some good ideas. But sweet god, when you get sackbeat for more than a month, it's time to admit defeat, not string it out and only invite more hits. Conserve yourself and be ready for more.

Hope springs eternal when full of Italian food.

No. Really.

Went out to lunch and got semi-stuffed on the lunch portion of Gnocci and a salad, to the point where I took a mostly full styrofoam container of Gnocci home for later. Been very busy, but got a few emails asking me for more info on some jobs I applied for, including willingness to move, salary range, etx.

We'll see what happens, but it makes the job search look quite a bit friendlier than yesterday.

In an effort to keep the job search moving, I threw open the gates and told Dice to get me all jobs in the US meeting desktop support/hardware tech.

It's fair to say that I've applied for nearly 100 jobs since 4pm, with more to go. Some notable employers include IBM, MGM Studios (looking for Mac support. Who knew?), Apple, Microsoft, Siemens, Sarcom, and the NSA.

Whee.

Well, that's a total of 157 resumes sent.

Admittedly, quite a few were with Robert Half or similar places where I had stored resumes, so I just had to click 'apply to job'.

But damn, that's a lot of resumes. I'm swinging for the fences here.

EDIT! Just checked cell. 3 calls from places wanting to talk to me more about resumes I submitted in the past few days. Maybe I managed to put one over.
